Taizé, located in the countryside of France, is a place to search for communion with God through community prayer, song, silence, personal reflection and sharing. Born after World War II, Taize has become a haven for seekers looking to step back from daily life, to meet a wide variety of people and consider one’s commitment in the Church and in society.

The average day consists of gathering three times a day for prayer using the familiar chants from Taizé that many will know, and a work duty, either preparing and serving food, cleaning, gardening, or any other task necessary for the life of the community for that week.
